Pyroluria, Pyrrole Disorder and a Healthy Diet

The importance of a nutritionally rich diet should not be overlooked by anyone suffering from Pyroluria or Pyrrole Disorder, but sadly it is often a forgotten piece of the puzzle. 

Foods that are found in nature and are not man made, processed foods, have many healing benefits and life extending properties. The great thing about natural foods for Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder sufferers is that are good sources of Zinc, Vitamin B6, Biotin, Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA) and Antioxidants.

Eating nutritionally rich foods is the single most important thing that a person can do for themselves. It is far more important than working, exercising, relaxing or meditating, because natural foods provide the key nutrients for every single cell in the body to function at its highest potential. This equates to health, vitality and wellness. 

A few simple questions we can ponder 

  • If you drive a gasoline or petrol car, would you fill the tank with diesel fuel?
  • Why are cola drinks more popular than water, or is candy eaten in preference to fruit?
  • How come people love to eat white rice, but screw their nose up at brown?
  • Why are people constantly putting the wrong fuel into their body, but expect it to perform at it's highest potential?
  • Did you know that caffeine, alcohol and sugar, either destroy or deplete zinc, vitamin B6 and biotin?

Improving the diet is the foundation of all health, and as such, provides the building blocks to help overcome Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder.

Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder sufferers are naturally low in the essential nutrients Zinc, vitamin B6, Biotin and GLA, as well as having lower than normal levels of antioxidants. Deficiencies in these nutrients seriously compromises the health of Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder sufferers. Whilst there are nutritional supplements like Pyrrole Support and Antioxidant Support that are essential in helping manage Pyroluria, it is important that the diet is nutritionally rich. Not only does a good diet provide key nutrients and antioxidants for both Pyroluria and Pyrrole Disorder sufferers, but it also provides an abundance of amino acids, vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that so many cells and organs crave.

An easy way to determine if your diet is healthy is by writing down everything you eat and drink for 7 days. After 7 days, be honest with yourself and if your diet has a high portion of man-made or man modified foods then look at incorporating a greater variety of the above-mentioned beneficial natural foods into your daily diet. This is a positive step forward in reclaiming health, and something that only you can do.
